Did This Missouri Republican Eat A Booger On Live TV?

Who nose?

There's a chance Rep. Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) was simply making sure she didn't have lipstick on her teeth. There's also a chance she was picking a booger, then eating it.

The potential goober grab may put the congresswoman in a rarefied category shared by former LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger -- who possibly did the same thing on live TV during a bowl game in Florida last January.

A request for comment from the representative's office was not immediately returned.
